Nata celebrate well its 490 years
When a Nata resident plans a big celebration, it should be taken seriously. Truly, the historic colonial city shone during the celebration of its 490th anniversary since being founded. This was demonstrated during the festival closing event on Sunday, when more than 30 delegations gathered for the traditional folk parade. After a persistent drizzle, the parade began just before 5:00 pm. Led by the district authorities, whom accompanied Farah Levy, the deputy director of the National Institute of Culture (INAC) and standard bearer of the day, the three hour-long parade was enlivened by delegations of public institutions, educational panels, neighborhood committees and other invited groups.
